The views from here are unsurpassed anywhere in California - a state, it should be noted, that encompasses both #BigSur and the #GoldengateBridgeCrowd Factor: High when Glacier Point Road is open. It's a short, easy hike with gasp-inducing views as a reward, so it draws a crowd. If you want similar, but slightly more secluded views, try hiking to Sentinel Dome or Taft Point instead. Dewey Point, farther west, is even less crowded - in fact, it might be the only trail in Yosemite that's arguably less crowded in the summer than the winter (it's a major destination for snowshoers and cross-country skiers in the winter). Washburn Point, which you'll pass three quarters of a mile before reaching Glacier Point, is also typically less crowded and a must stop.Source: https://en.wikipedia.org#요세미티 국립공원Parking: There's a large parking lot at the trailhead. It occasionally fills up, but if you do a loop or two around the lot, something will likely open up. If you're a rain god and can summon thunderheads at will, that should speed things up.Nearest Bathrooms: Scattered throughout the parking lot, all pit toilets. It's common to find lines three or four deep at the outhouses closest to the trailhead and nobody using the toilets towards the back of the lot, where I usually park because it's handy to the food-storage lockers. Bathrooms with plumbing right at the trailhead have been closed for years, reportedly because the area is too rocky to create a sufficiently large leach field.Rivers & WaterfallsAs warmer weather begins to melt the snow, even the smallest creeks are rushing with water. You may see many small, unnamed waterfalls and cascades all along the Valley rim. Larger creeks and rivers, along with the better known waterfalls, tend to reach peak runoff in May or June.HikingWhile most of Yosemite remains snowy through May and into June, some hikes from Yosemite Valley, Wawona, and Hetch Hetchy are often snow-free by April, and most are usually snow-free by sometime in May. However, as in winter, backpacking options are very limited.Areas to visitWhile Yosemite Valley and Wawona remain accessible by car all year, the Tioga and Glacier Point Roads remain closed due to snow, often until late May or June (see a list of opening dates since 1980). Tire chains sometimes are required even during spring. When they are, you should carry and know how to use them, regardless of the type of vehicle you are driving. 优胜美地Mariposa Grove Road usually opens by sometime in April, allowing for access to vehicles displaying a disability placard, with free shuttle service between the Mariposa Grove Welcome Plaza (near South Entrance) and the Mariposa Grove. When the road is closed, the Washburn Trail provides a two-mile route (500 feet of elevation gain) to the Mariposa Grove. The trail may be snowy or icy (skis or snowshoes may be appropriate).Arrive at Yosemite before mid-morning, especially on weekends, to avoid delays at entrance stations and popular areas like Yosemite Valley and Glacier Point.#campingYosemite National Park Campground Status for 2021Yosemite National Park will open additional campgrounds during the 2021 summer camping season, with social distancing measures in place.
